Looking for something fun to do this winter while you are visiting the beautiful North Georgia Mountains? Ellijay’s Cartecay Vineyards is an absolute perfect idea for those that enjoy a nice relaxing evening away! The 13 acres of vineyards are beautiful no matter what time of year!
You can enjoy an evening out with your special someone or group of friends by relaxing in their tasting barn that features a tasting bar, a sitting area around a wood fire stove, a covered porch, a deck and an events room, which was originally a hay loft, that can seat up to 45 people. If the weather is good, there is the chimney patio which features the chimney and a covered stage. The chimney patio is always open for use and a wonderful place to sit, relax and take in the ambiance of the vineyard. The chimney patio also boasts a tasting bar and in times of good weather, it is where scheduled live music is performed. The chimney is functional and often has a fire burning to ease the chill of the season.
Most Saturday evenings Cartecay has live music performances for you to enjoy while sipping on 5 different types of wine from the vineyard. For $13 you can enjoy live music, the tastings and receive a logo wine glass from Cartecay. Most of the musicians begin around 1:30 and go until 5:30. Check the calendar for the upcoming musicians.
